Publisher's Summary

At Cold Mountain Penitentiary, along the lonely stretch of cells known as the Green Mile, killers such as "Billy the Kid" Wharton and the possessed Eduard Delacroix await death strapped in "Old Sparky". Guards as decent as Paul Edgecombe and as sadistic as Percy Wetmore watch over them.

But good or evil, innocent or guilty, none has ever seen the brutal likes of the new prisoner, John Coffey, sentenced to death for raping and murdering two young girls. Is Coffey a devil in human form? Or is he a far, far different kind of being?

There are more wonders in heaven and hell than anyone at Cold Mountain can imagine. In The Green Mile, Stephen King builds the tension page by page and then delivers a revelation that will truly blow your mind.

Watched the film but this is better

The narrator was very good, he brought the characters to life and his voice was very easy to listen to. loved the film but the book is far better. Would recommend

You get lost in the emotion and feel every word

Every book takes you on a trip but this book opens you up to an idea on how to be a better you. its a strong story with very open and detailed sub story's but mostly it's a story of love and understanding.

Wonderful story - performance couldn't have been better

One of my favourite King's - the narrators pace and delivery fits the tale perfectly. All the characters are voiced to fit the personalities and you can tell them apart easily, but it is never over done. One of the saddest endings ever!

I lived every word of the green mile

I really enjoyed the film of the green mile,it being one of my favourites. So I had no expectations of enjoying the audio book!! However it brought all the characters to life, the descriptive urinary infection had me smiling and I cried along with the guards at the execution of John. It has been one of my favourite audio books, and I am saddened that it has finished.

Fan-bloody-tastic!

I loved this story, and I now love the film that much more as it's such a good representation.

I loved all of the characters and found the story completely captivating, not wanting to get out of my car where I was listening to it.

The reader was great, doing all the voices exactly as described. A must-listen!

enjoyable

there's very little difference between the movie and the novel, and I didn't feel like I gained a greater insight into the characters either. Still I found it enjoyable to listen too.
